PROTOZOAN PATHOGENS

Cryptosporidium and Giardia are widely distributed in the aquatic environment and are the principal protozoan pathogens that affect the public health acceptability of waters in the United States. Both produce environmentally resistant forms (oocysts and cysts) that allow for their extended survival in water. The OWML analyzes water samples for Cryptosporidium and Giardia by use of the USEPA-approved Filtration/IMS/FA method.
